‘You are God’s building …’

The world today is constantly giving us mixed messages—have the best body you can, but, here, eat this. Our readings today remind us how important the body is. It is a gift from God to be treasured and cared for—not merely physically, but spiritually. Spiritual care is often seen as an added or optional extra, rather than that which makes us truly who we are created to be.

The image of water flowing from the temple and changing the landscape into a land which flourishes reminds us of what happens when we allow God into every part of our being. Where does life-giving water flow from into our lives?
